"Pita Pit opens near Dillon campus"
By J.P. Plutt
Dillon's Ashly and Travis Cottom have opened Pita Pit, a fast food restaurant, near the University of Montana Western at the former location of Dairy Queen.
Ashly Cottom and her husband Travis enjoyed their college years at the University of Montana in Missoula. The couple regularly dined at Pita Pit and when they spent three weeks in January at the neonatal intensive care unit watching over their young son, they began calling Pita Pit for deliveries to the hospital.
"I wanted to try something different," said Ashly, who at the time was the manager at Wells Fargo Bank in Dillon. "We started thinking it would do really well here in Dillon. This building came up for sale shortly after that so we decided to go for it."
